New Residency Rules for 2016 Benefits School of Choice
by posted 01/04/2016

Little League International, the governing body of Little League, has changed their residency rule for the 2016 season. Beginning this season a person is eligible to play in a local league if they live inside of the league boundaries, or if they attend school inside a league's boundaries. That means ALL Northview students are now eligible to play Northview Little League.

In the previous rules the only eligibility requirement was the player's residence and what league boundary that residence was within. This former rule affected many School of Choice students who attend Northview Schools, but did not live inside the district.

Northview Little League boundaries are the same as the Northview Public Schools boundaries, so any student who attends a Northview School building can play with their friends and classmates in the Northview Little league.
